‹ Growing Native with Petey Mesquitey

Simmondsia chinensis

I’m not sure I can add a whole lot more about jojoba (Simmondsia chinesis) other than what you hear in this show, except that it is now in its own family, Simmondsiaceae, and not in the boxwood family. Oh, and I do love the story of how jojoba’s Latinized name came about and I’m glad I finally got to tell it. If you want a little more information on this very cool native shrub, below is a link to another show in which I jabber about jojoba.

All the photos are mine and were taken in the Dos Cabezas Mountains
